But wait—there’s more, including a very swanky David Bowie figure and a very large Iron Man. Check it out!

It was called everything from a reboot to a sequel and, since David Bowie had just passed away when it happened, everyone was upset and confused. Now, there’s a director and writer on board, along with some clarification…
The Labyrinth sequel may never materialize, and a reboot’s future is uncertain after the untimely death of the orb-juggling Jareth (all hail the Goblin King).

A veritable Odin among rock gods, mightier than mere Rolling Stones, more talented than any formerly known Princes, the incomparable David Bowie turns 67 today.
Lately, it seems like every story has to be massive, or nobody cares. Every Doctor Who story is about saving the entire universe. The latest Hobbit movie seemed to be trying to be a Lord of the Rings-style saga. Every action movie needs global stakes. Can we talk about our epic epidemic?
There are no questions about zombies, the ending of Man of Steel, or superhero genitalia in this week's mailbag. I should be happy, but instead I'm just suspicious. What are you people planning?!
